The Health Sector Reform Program (HSRP) is promoting the Family Health Model (FHM) as the new system of family-based Primary Health Care (PHC).
The current study is designed in order to document and explain the impact of the FHM on RH-services and to suggest interventions to promote the role of FHM in increasing the utilization of RH-services. The findings of this study are essential to support the MOHP and UNFPA in their efforts to strengthen the RH impact of the FHM. Those efforts are directed towards creating a number of model districts where quality integrated RH-services are not only available and accessible, but also have the support from the local communities who are familiar with the key concepts of RH and the available RH- services.
